Today we arrived in Emmersdorf, Austria. and were able to have a leisurely breakfast before embarking on our walking tour at 1030am. Today, we visited Melk Abbey, With its cobblestone streets and majestic abbey, Melk is a highlight of the Danube Valley visit. The abbey is majestically situated on an outcrop rising above the Danube, it stands resplendent in a golden hue, crowned by tours. The views were spectacular.

Fog had settled on Linz and we were on no hurry to leave. It was cold and damp. We rode through the back alleys exploring the city, and back to the beautiful square. We lingered for a bit before heading over the bridge. We thought we were headed to the train station to cut off a few kilometers by going to Enns, but it turned out to be the local station, not the one for regional trains, so we hit the bike trail instead.
The ride out of town goes along ...
